The economy is no doubt biting many families amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, however, to survive, you must also protect your pocket from licking. Learning how to protect your purse is also a skill you must learn if you have not already learned it.
One way to protect yourself against frivolous, panic spending is to learn how to control your spending habits, your buying emotion.
Are we not amazed at how callous and capitalistic people can be. Since the news break of coronavirus in Nigeria, prices of Hand Sanitizers have skyrocketed with an increase of about 500% under 2 days! Worse still, NOT AVAILABLE.
TODAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE YOUR OWN HAND SANITIZERS which will be as potent as store-bought, if not more potent and without the nasty additives.
Dr. Ed Chag, the medical director of Parkway Shenton and Dr. Natasha Bagdasaria, a medical consultant with the Division of infectious disease affirmed that, for a HAND SANITIZER TO BE EFFECTIVE AGAINST BACTERIA AND VIRUS, IT MUST CONTAIN AT LEAST 60% ALCOHOL!
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and CDC have been emphasizing on ALCOHOL BASED hand sanitizers to protect yourself against the spread of COVID-19 Virus.
With that in mind, I present to you below, Homemade hand sanitizer, Alcohol-based, with extras and without nasty chemicals in commercial ones:
(1). 2/3 Cup of rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, etc) Forget about the big names, if you are a Nigerian, just grab Moko Methylated Spirit, it contains 88.93% Isopropyl Alcohol, 11.94% Ethanol, 0.13% Propanol, and just 0.01% Water. Meaning it is about 99.9% Alcohol!
(2). 1/3 Cup of 100% pure Aloe Vera. This will act as a carrier and as a moisturizer to prevent your hands from drying out from the effect of the alcohol. If you can not get Aloe Vera, replace it with Vegetable Glycerine, but drop volume a little so your hand doesn’t get sticky.
(3). 10 drops of Lavender Essential oil (For fragrance). If you don’t care how it smells, forget about this.
Get a clean container and pour it in and use it as occasion permits.
Mix the ingredients together thoroughly, then fill into several portable squeeze plastic bottles. Give to all your households, friends and brag about our group! You are protected (handwise)
TWEAKING THE FORMULA WITH EXTRAS (OPTIONAL)
(4) Essential oil
(5) Add 1 TSP of Vitamin E oil for extra moisturizing and lustrous skin.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are rich and you shack Vodka, you do not need to buy any Rubbing Alcohol, replace number 1 above with Vodka, but be sure it is not less than 100 Proof Vodka (This contain 50% Alcohol), such as Balkan Vodka. If you get 176 Proof Vodka, that’s better (It contains 88% Alcohol). 179 Proof Vodka contains 89.9% Alcohol. Stop right there, that’s all you need!
You have been enriched with knowledge, protect yourself. As usual, it is my prayers that the Almighty God will protect us from pestilences and heal our land. Amen.
WARNING: PLEASE DON’T DRINK IT, KEEP AWAY FROM THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Please share this information with family and friends, I’m sure it will cushion the effects of coronavirus of the pocket.
Enjoy your day.
